Well that's two players injured right off the bat. Pulkinnen and Jurco 

 

Not to mention they're the two guys who need to prove themselves the most.

 

At least we could probably get away with sending them both to the minors for conditioning stints.

#RedWings Tomas Jurco had "minor" back surgery last week, hurting himself working out. Out 4-6 weeks. Might not be ready for start of season

 

#RedWings expect Niklas Kronwall to be ready for start of camp. Knee feels better, not 100 percent, so he withdrew f. World Cup, per Holland

 

#RedWings D prospect Vili Saarijarvi will have wrist surgery, sidelining him for three months, Ken Holland said. Hurt in Plymouth tourney.

 

So much for a roster crunch lol

He should never have been on the team. Good for both the Red Wings and the Swedish national team that he doesn't play. From what I have gathered it's his old knee injury, he's giving it more time to improve if possible, which I doubt.

 

Hampus Lindholm from Anaheim replaces him, whom I have advocated trading for if at all possible. I'll enjoy watching him play in the tournament, the kid has an excellent full speed skill-set. He'll be a bona-fide star in the NHL soon enough, barring injuries.

 

Well that's a pretty good upgrade for team Sweden...

I know, I don't know how or where they get some of their rumours, but in some cases, like with the whole Vessey thing, they are really up to date.
 

Johnson's on injury reserve. Any chance they'd be willing to give up Savard or Seth Jones?


Jones and Murray are untouchable.

Savard is not worth trading Nyquist for.

I would be interested in Werenski but he would cost more than Nyquist.

per thehockeypress.ca
 
Source said Blue Jackets have been in contact with the Detroit Red Wings regarding Gustav Nyquist. CBJ are VERY interested in Nyquist. Jackets would have to give up AT LEAST a Top 4 Def. to acquire him.
 
Wondering who they'd be willing to give up.


I would question the validity of that source. Since they don't even have one...
